Indeed an exciting joint venture that builds on our own company’s maritime and offshore expertise.”

This collaboration underscores the joint commitment of both parties to advancing environmental conservation efforts and setting new industry standards.

CEO and Founder of RanMarine Technology, Richard Hardiman “RanMarine and HEBO are enthusiastic about the potential of this cooperative venture to make a significant impact on protecting our waterways and oceans from the devastating effects of oil pollution. The OilShark will represent a significant leap forward in oil spill response technology, delivering a solution that is not only highly effective but also environmentally conscious.”
